Virus from Facebook

Some people told me that viruses could be obtained from facebook games and applicatons. I wonder if it is true. I read on it in other websites also. Has anyone have experience on this?

I'm not a fan of facebook apps so i can't tell for sure. But i have yet to hear from my friends that their PC got infected through a facebook application. Most of my friends play farmville, i think almost everybody does. I think this could just be rumors. Facebook were able to retain a lot of subscribers because of the applications, if a lot feel that their PCs are not safe with any of the apps, facebook will lose a lot of subscribers. If ever the rumor is true, i think facebook would be the first to act on it to ensure that its apps remain clean.

i cant say that I've heard that before. i really don't spend much time on facebook and I'm not a big fan of those apps. i wouldn't be shocked if some of those apps give you virus, but i doubt it because its not some that facebook wold allow a program that infects its members with virus. if some one was getting those viruses they should report them to face book so that others don't get that virus too.
